Greetings~

I hope this note finds you all doing well on this fine Friday. I've been very busy creating some wonderful new  holiday wares for you.
This evening, Friday, October 14th at  7:30 eastern time, I will be updating my page on Early Work Mercantile.
I will have some wonderful , hanging snowmen, Santa's and one sweet angel and a couple of very Wee Bears. If you are able to join this evening's update and choose to purchase, please bear with me as sometimes these updates get very busy and it takes awhile for me to sort through all of the emails to see whom was the first to request each hand made. I would hate to make a mistake!
If you are new to my updates, there will be a link for my email at the top of my EWM page. You will be able to click on that to place an order.Sometimes things sell out quickly, but I do have at least 11 treasures to offer tonight.
Until then, I wish you all a peaceful  day ~

Hello Everyone! If you would like to order from tonight's update, please email me at thebuttonbox@twc.com  . Please be sure to include your zip code and how you wish to pay. I accept PAYPAL, check and money order. Please note that orders will be held until checks clear. 
 I have suggested in past updates, if you have a second choice doll, include that in your email. That way if your first choice is gone, you may still have a shot  at another doll. Just a thought.  Please be certain that you want an item before you email me wishing to purchase. Thank you all so much for stopping by....Blessings ~ Lynn

Wee Pumpkin Dolls
 I love these dolls. They are so simple and sweet. Each doll measure 17-18 inches tall. Each doll's head is made from painted, sanded and aged osnaburg that's been rubbed down with spices. Their faces are hand stitched. Their limbs are heavily aged and naively but securely attached with aged cotton string.  Each doll's body is rag stuffed  (fabric scraps) and is somewhat pose-able by squishing or slouching by hand.Each wears a skirt and apron. All of them are dressed in beige's ,blacks, blue's or browns. Each doll has a wooden tag with either a letter "p" for pumpkin, a letter "f" for fall or a "j' for Jack. Some have glass bead buttons,some have vintage buttons or a rustic metal embellishment. There are 4 orange and 4 dirty white dolls. Each doll is signed and dated on the back of their tag. Each doll comes with a sprig of preserved oak leaves.
Not meant for wee hands. Each doll is $42 plus shipping. Please state the number of the doll when ordering. I really loved making these wee ones.  I wanted to make some black, but there's never enough time!
